Fender American Ultra Precision Bass - Maple Fingerboard
The Fender American Ultra Precision Bass is an advanced take on Fender's iconic bass guitar. Utilizing a selection of upgrades and modern appointments, this Ultra P Bass delivers the ultimate in feel, performance and tone.
This American Ultra model takes inspiration from the original P bass with its instantly recognisable body design, but looks to the future and demands of the modern player in terms of its feel. A new, ultra satin finished Modern D profiled neck, complete with rolled fingerboard edges and a tapered neck heel, allow for supreme playing comfort whilst giving access to the higher register. The maple fingerboard (set with 22 medium jumbo frets and dot inlays), has a speedy 10"-14" compound radius, perfect for laying down solid grooves and happy to adapt when soloing or chordal work may be required.
This really is a bass that offers an extremely versatile tonal specification for almost any application. The fat sounding, split-coil Ultra Precision Noiseless pickup is joined by an Ultra Noiseless Jazz Bass pickup at the bridge. These two pickups, combined with the master volume, pan pot and 3-band eq gives access to a huge array of tones, something any modern day bassist will truly appreciate.
The 4-saddle HiMass has been designed to increase note attack and resonance for those massive basslines as well as boosting the punch of every note and allowing for superb sustain. At the other end, Fender "F" lightweight vintage paddle tuners with tapered shafts allow for rock solid tuning whilst adding to the superb balance of the bass. The package comes complete with an Elite Moulded Case.
With its array of contemporary appointments, classic styling, exceptional feel and modern tone, the Fender Ultra Precision Bass is a true performer ready for any stage!
